4.0 out of 5 stars Denmark????, 28 Feb. 2013
This review is from: Beowulf: A New Translation (Paperback)
This may seem really thick of me, but I've only just remembered about Denmark as a country and bothered to look it up in an old Encyclopoedia Brittannica. I didn't realize it was lots of little islands, and worry how it might cope with a sea water rise due to Global Warming. I live in York, but never once actually clicked that the Vikings came from Denmark. Furthermore, I was once told about the Anglo's, the Saxon's and the Jutes - but again, have been wondering for years who the Jutes are - and now realize they came from Jutland - one of the bigger islands in Denmark. I read and studied Beowulf but again, never really clicked that Heorot was supposed to be in Denmark - and never wondered why it wasn't in Danish, but in Anglo-Saxon, then?

No, Jutland is the bit of Denmark which isn't an island, the peninsular which juts (geddit?) up from Germany.
